    I am helping someone to repair the keyboard, seemed to be sticking when press c gets cv, d gets df, e gets er and t gets T.

    Reinstalled XP, drivers that came with HP, flashed the BIOS. What else?

    Clean the keyboard underneath. :D

    First step (before messing around with anything else) should be to plug and external keyboard in - this should give a pretty good clue as to whether or not it's a hardware problem.

    If external keyboard is OK, then remove the laptop keyboard and reset the connector (might help - although I suspect some kind of matix problem = replace keyboard).

    The service manuals are available on the web from HP/Compaq, and they give details instructions on stripping it down (have done to replace power connector before now).

    LMAO :D

    As stevesy said, its most likely just a requirement to reseat the keyboard connector.... unless of course you've spilt liquid into the laptop which could result in either a new keypad or worse, a new mobo.

    new replacement keypads arent that expensive.

    replacements can be had from HP parts. 0870 842 2339. You will need the machine part code, serial number and the part number of the keyboard.

    Not much depth of knowledge need for this problem though, establish it's a hardware fault then google or ebay for a replacement.
